Milani Neon Specialty Nail Lacquer Milani Paint Eyeshadow Palette

Milani Neon Specialty Nail Lacquer Milani Paint Eyeshadow Palette 002

Dude, admit that probs the coolest part about the Girl’s Just Wanna Have Fun video is the fact that Lou Albano played Cyndi Lauper’s dad!

Even as a child I thought, “WTH are those rubber bands for?” The man had rubber band piercings…dood, rubber band piercings…!

Milani Neon Specialty Nail Lacquer Milani Paint Eyeshadow Palette 003

Anyways, Cyndi makes me think 80’s and Neon so I’m all about rockin’ it for Summer even though these old eyes can’t quite kick it as well as they used to.

But I still have love for the loud and bold so I most definitely wants me the Milani Paint Eyeshadow Palette!

Plus matching Milani Neon Specialty Nail Lacquer could get my nail girls excited.

Rubber bands sold seperatly.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer

I wasn’t terribly impressed with the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Foundation when it released. The actual design of the product is interesting and I like the application method even though I can’t help but shudder over the bacteria that may be lurking in that little puff (Maybelline claims it’s treated with an anti-bacterial agent but I’m not convinced).

My main problem with the foundation was it felt greasy on my face and had a really long dry down time. It remained dewy to the touch hours after application. Some proclaimed it set fabulously with powder but I have drier skin so I normally avoid powder. Others proclaimed it a flawless finish and indeed, it did give a rather great overall finish but it was that greasy, slick, never drying formula that threw me for a curve ball.

Am I bias against drugstore foundation? Possibly but I really do think Age Rewind wasn’t all that fabulous a pick. What did you think if you tried it?

Maybelline gifts us with an early Fall release and extension on the Age Rewind idea with a new concealer. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer might be good…I’m kinda hyped here peeps. Age Rewind Foundation sucked it hard but maybe the concealer will prove brilliance on a stick.
